Eagles OTA practice notes, June 2, 2015: Statue Bradford - PhillyVoice
Bradford barely moved his feet during his reps. He had deliberate movements, whereas the other quarterbacks had much more natural-looking footwork. Any casual observer could clearly see a difference. He's slightly more mobile than a JUGS machine right now. We'll see if that changes as the summer progresses.

Agholor And Matthews "Like Twins" - PE.com
"Me and Nelson, we're like twins almost," Matthews said after Tuesday's Organized Team Activity. "He jumps right in with me and Josh (Huff) … The dude is one of the most explosive guys on the team already. So his work ethic speaks for itself, so I think we're real compatible. I love spending time with the guy, not just here but also outside of football. Great personality, I know the city's going to love him. I just can't wait to continue to get to work with him and see what he can do on the field."

Potential Playmaker? - Iggles Blitz
Walter Thurmond has a chance to start at Safety for the Eagles. The first reason for that is simply that the Eagles don’t have a very good situation at the Safety position. Right now you might label the group Malcolm Jenkins and the 5 Heartbeats. After all, having a pulse is about all it takes to be in the mix for a starting gig there. I’m fascinated by Thurmond as a Safety. The more I think about it, the more he reminds me of Damarious Randall, who the Eagles supposedly liked a lot. Randall played in the slot a lot in college. Thurmond has played outside corner and in the slot. They can cover. Both lack ideal tackling skills. Both have good ball skills.

Marcus Smith calls groin injury 'minor setback to major comeback' after missing Eagles' OTA - NJ.com
"In the second day of practice I was ripping to the left and my groin pulled on me," Smith told NJ Advance Media following Tuesday's practice. "I should be back Monday."

Chip Kelly's polarizing Philadelphia Eagles: My NFC East champs - NFL.com
I think Chip Kelly is a fantastic, rare football mind. And now, with full autonomy, he's going to build the team in his image. Last Thursday, Kelly was asked if this team is better than last season's outfit was at this point in the year. The cocksure coach didn't hesitate: "1,000 percent."

Adrian Peterson says he apologized to son, 'would run through brick wall' for kids - SB Nation
Adrian Peterson spoke about how he has reconciled with his son and the Vikings after a saga sparked by child abuse charges last September.
